I put a plan together and hoped friends would be keen to come with me and sure enough they were. It was forecast to be a hot day and what better place to play than where there are lakes, rivers, creeks and waterfalls. We left the concrete jungle at 6:15 had a smooth sale to the trail head parking arriving at 8:15am only to find it already full. We then created a make shift spot to park. We made good time through the forest to Lake Annette. After a short snack break, we hit the creek side trail and.....
...made our way to the Giant Steps.

We still had a lot of kilometers to cover so carried on back to the trail we came up on.
The views were better now than they were early this morning.

We hiked through the woods, crossed a couple of bridges and had one last look at Mount Temple which was a steadfast the entire day. With just a couple of clicks to cover we just made business of it and dealt with it.
We were well into early evening by the time we completed our adventure. I was very thankful it was over and glad to be able to sit on something soft with my boots off and head home. We had an incredible experience. With a great group of troopers, many memories were created to carry forward. It is days like this one that I make sure to appreciate even more and be thankful for. We had everything on our side and we worked together to execute a flawless adventure.
Thank you for today!
